Mind & Body Research

The Mind & Body Team is developing our capacity to enable us to increase the research and evaluation done within the team and our collaborations with other parts of KHP and South East London. Mind & Body brings together a wealth of clinical, health delivery, policy and research expertise to offer unique opportunities for improve mind and body related research and evaluation. 

Examples of current projects include: 

  • Development of our new Mind & Body research and evaluation strategy and framework; 
  • Lessons learned from the implementation of the IMPARTS project
  • Evaluation of the implementation and impact of the KCH Workforce Social Support project funded by Impact on Urban Health. 
  • Understanding engagement and attrition in the patient pathway of the PEACS project
  • We have expertise in many aspects of clinically-facing research and evaluation including research design, qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, and implementation science.  This allows the team to combine our expertise to undertake bespoke evaluations and research studies. 

Support we can offer 

We are able to offer a range support with existing research, help with developing new studies or evaluations, and delivering commissioned work. Available support includes: 

  • Evaluation design and support: providing independent, expert advice and support to ensure robust, high-quality evaluation delivery; 
  • Mixed method evaluations of a range of sizes from smaller, targeted or local innovations or care pathways to wider system-wide programmes of work.
